During Lent, Catholic Relief Services provides Catholics in the United States an opportunity to live in true communion with our bothers and sisters worldwide through Operation Rice Bowl. CRS’ Operation Rice Bowl offers simple yet powerful ways for parishes, schools and families to bring our Catholic faith to life during the holy season of Lent.
The program provides resources and for use in parish and school community settings, with complimentary materials for families to foster their faith in the home.
By participating in traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving through Operation Rice Bowl, the faithful in our diocese are making a positive difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters who are most in need. Operation Rice Bowl begins on Ash Wednesday (March 22) and ends with Easter Sunday (April 8). For resources, visit http://orb.crs.org/resources/.
